Safety

Our safety vision ‘Delivering Safely, Driving Safety’ is: To create and maintain an environment where care for our people and those who work with us is our top priority, and the belief that all accidents are preventable prevails.’



We see it as critical that our people, and all stakeholders who are affected by our activities, benefit from an incident-free environment.  These principals mean that we demand the highest levels of commitment from the whole Collett network.  A strong safety culture is imperative to the welfare and well-being of our workforce and it is our belief that this initiative does play a pivotal role in our aspiration to become truly industry leading in safety.  This is reflected in our approach of Delivering Safely, Driving Safety.  This approach is integrated into our business strategy and we will ensure that our customers, supply chain, employees and the public that we interface with all benefit from our commitment to being safe.

What is Delivering Safely, Driving Safety?

A culture where everyone is committed, this is achieved through strong leadership, from the top down.  Our positive safe culture has taken time and effort to achieve; we have evolved our current culture through strong leadership.  This will continually improve and continually evolve through these principals.  Everyone stakeholder is involved in this process.  We ask our colleagues: “Think about what you can do.  How can you get involved?”

We have a goal to secure an incident free environment.  Being safe is, and always will be, about keeping people and environments safe.  This is part of our business strategy.  To us being safe is vital in all we do.  It is part and parcel of who we are, what we do and how we do it.  It’s not merely an ‘add-on’.

We are constantly asking ‘what if?’.  We are constantly making sure our planning and risk management considers everything that is needed.
